ZING!!! :D

The Czech version looks fairly close to what the Arabic would be, if I'm reading the Czech orthography correctly. The verb form yaḥya (not really two words, "ya hya", as FH put it) is present tense used as an optative; "chouhada" should be (ash-)shuhada "the martyrs".

I think that was translator's point, to show the Arabic roots more clearly; and easier to a Czech reader, who understands other sounds under "ch" or "ou"...and many Arab countries were allies of CS at time of translation.
